Chicago's "BIG NIGHT" for animals



This past Thursday, Steve and I attended the Fourth Annual "Big Night" celebrity chefs event in order to help the 30,000 animals who find their way to Chicago's Animal Care and Control shelter (where I volunteer) every year. It was held at the newly restored Tiffany dome in beautiful Preston Bradley Hall of the Chicago Cultural Center. There were more than a dozen of Chicago's most renowned chefs that donated their time and incredible food; open bar, blues music by Delmark Recording artist Dave Specter and the Bluebirds; as well as a silent auction hosted by journalist Bill Kurtis. That Girl was there too!!

We had a great time - and there was an amazing turnout! This will be an event that we will definitely be going to every year.

Sounds like a lot of fun... and all for a very good cause too. Hope you won something at the silent auction. Btw, we need to see some photos of the culinary art created by the great chefs of Chicago!!
